Nagpur: Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Monday announced that a Bakramandi (Goat Market) and slaughter-house will be set up in Kalamna on NIT land. “The APMC (Agriculture Produce Market Committee) does not have land for Bakramandi and slaughter-house. Hence Nagpur Improvement should acquire a private land and allot it for Bakramandi. The land could be purchased even by selling TDR. The NIT will be issued No Objection Certificate within eight days and the work for building Bakramandi will begin soon,” Bawankule stated at a meeting of officials held here on Monday.
The meeting was attended by Ramtek MP Krupal Tumane, Mayor Pravin Datke, Saoner MLA Sunil Kedar and Katol MLA Ashish Deshmukh. Mayor said he had taken a stand that if APMC provided land then NMC will construct the slaughter-house. But Kedar said that APMC has no land for it. The meeting unanimously agreed that NIT should make available land for Bakramandi. The NIT pointed out that a 7-acre private land is available at Kalamna. However, the private land has been encroached upon but it can be acquisitioned by removing the encroachments. Finally, the meeting decided that NMC will give TDR to the owner of the land and acquire the private land and start construction for Bakramandi.
The six-acre land in Mominpura for Bakramandi as shown in City Development Plan has been encroached upon. Out of six acres, only 22000 sq ft of land is vacant. Therefore, Bakramandi in Mominpura is also not possible. With this situation at hands, the people’s representatives agreed for Bakramandi in Kalamna itself.
